Torquay Marina is in the north-east corner of Torbay and sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds, so it’s a safe haven for boats in all weathers. With modern facilities and superb bluewater cruising, it's popular with yachtsmen from home and overseas.
There are numerous contractors offering marine services on site, as well as a chandlery, boat brokerage and new boat sales. Basic provisions are available from the dock office along with an artisan café offering coffee, breakfast and pizza deliveries to mooring boats, perfect for when you've worked up an appetite on the water. A paddle and watersports centre alongside jet ski rides are also located at the marina, plus there is a host of fabulous restaurants around the harbour. RIB rides will also be coming to the marina by the end of 2020.
Tucked away at the head of Galmpton Creek, Dartside Quay lies some three miles upriver from Dartmouth. The 7-acre dry boat storage area has space for over 300 boats and is serviced by a 65-ton hoist, one of the largest in the area, which operates from a purpose-built dock. There is also a 16-ton trailer hoist operating on a slipway.
The Green Blue has developed an online map to show which marinas, boatyards and harbours provide environmental facilities such as pump out, black water/Elsen disposal, recycling, freshwater refill points, hazardous waste disposal and filtered/bunded boat washdown. Click here for the location map.
There are numerous beautiful anchorages around the surrounding coastline, but please refer to this document that outlines where not to anchor due to seagrass beds. Heading south brings you to the picturesque fishing village of Brixham, where we also have a marina, and where there are many fine restaurants.
Head further west and explore the sheltered River Dart. Beyond Start Point is the beautiful Salcombe Estuary with spectacular 400 foot cliffs at Bolt Head. The marina is also conveniently situated for crossing the Channel to Brittany, Normandy and the Channel Islands, ideal for a weekend away.
